Maker's Notes: You might notice that some of these icons have a bit of a different style from my usual icons. Some of that's because of specific challenges about imitating other's styles, but more of it was just me messing around with textures and such.  I'm not very fond of some of them, but what I'd really, really like is some concrit so I can figure out where I'd like to go from here.  

Also, given some recent craziness at iconsecrets, I feel as though I need to point out that 3 and 33 are my sad, sad attempts at making icons inspired by fuuurs' awesome style and this tutorial/q&a post in particular.  I don't have a long term plan to copy her work or anything, I just thought it would be a good exercise to try and imitate her style because it's both so awesome and so different from mine. So, um, yeah, I guess I am copying her but it's intentional and with complete credit given, so hopefully that's more ok.

01-20 Doctor Who
21-56 Sanctuary
57-64 Amanda Tapping (from a photoshoot video by DenDen)
65-68 Fringe

Yes, the title is misleading - but Sherlock icons are next up on my list!  *points to userpic*  I thought I should post these first as I've been holding on to some of them since November and my style has shifted a bit since then.  I hope you like them! <3

I wanted to document how I've changed as an iconmaker over the past year, and why that change has made me confident enough to go crazy and create an icon community.
